Shareece Wright wanted out of San Francisco. He got his wish Saturday.

The 49ers announced they released the cornerback and signed guard Andrew Tiller from the practice squad.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported early last week that Wright was seeking a trade or release. A dozen days later, the Niners granted his request.

Wright thanked the Niners on Twitter for his release.

Wright signed a one-year, $3 million deal in March after making 27 starts over the past four seasons with the San Diego Chargers. The 28-year-old defensive back was not active in any of the Niners' four games this season.

With a faltering remade offensive line, Tiller (6-foot-4, 324) will provide depth. He appeared in one game in 2014. Tiller reportedly took some first-team reps at right guard this week.
